On a lighter note, here’s something completely unrelated to toy recalls. One of our favorite moms, Timiza Johnson, who heads up West Contra Costaâ€™s Mocha Moms group, just sent us this YouTube clip of a singing dad who warbles about the woes of bedtime … to Pachelbelâ€™s Canon. We’re thoroughly enamored and we’re not alone – Pachelbel Bedtime’s at 184,000 hits and counting.
The singer-songwriter is David Crawford, a Georgia middle school teacher with two daughters, and a penchant for witty lyrics. (Check out his “Spoiled Bumblebee” too.) The bedtime song seems to have struck a chord, pardon the pun, with families around the world. It’s been downloaded from Tasmania to Argentina – proof positive, Crawford says in an e-mail, that “the challenges and joys of raising children appear to be at the very least global, if not universal.”
